Moving into our new house was a great day but over time one thing started to annoy me about its bathroom fan. After trying to get used to the continuous fan sound while in bath we resorted to the only thing we knew. We turned it off at the switch. Peace and quiet at long last. Finally I was happy in the bath. This was the situation for over a year before we started to get a damp problem in the walls.
Our builder informed us that the walls needed re-plastering so we paid for that and the redecoration afterwards. I mentioned to him that the fan was off because it was so noisy and he installed what we thought was a quieter one. Sadly though, and maybe I'm too picky but what sound quiet when during normal daytime is it seems not actually that quiet during a nice relaxing bath. The whirring was back.
I'd had enough so started looking myself on the internet for silent bathroom fans. I was surprised to turn up very little of interest it seems like no one believe it or not claims to make a truly silent bathroom fan to the general market but I did however notice Panasonic were marketing some fans they had branded Whisper quiet.
According to Google shopping the cheapest retailer for a Panasonic Bathroom Fan like this is actually Amazon. I went straight ahead and ordered the FV-08WQ1 Whisper Quiet bathroom fan from them. I must say at this point I was a little cynical because the price just from Amazon without even shopping around anywhere was a deal less than the one the builder installed for us.
All credit to Amazon we had our delivery in the stated time and a friend offered to swap it with the old one. First switch on and I was worried that may friend had installed it wrong as it wasn't doing anything. But on closer inspection it was (we had to get a lit candle to confirm it). You would no believe how quiet this fan actually is. Panasonic should take note and actually sell this as a Silent Bathroom Fan because to my ears its as silent as you could ever need.
Ah bliss laying in the bath with just my own splashing for company. Thanks for taking time to read my experience with bathroom fans.
Thatï¿½s just based on the one fan of course so If you want to add other contenders for the quietest bathroom fan then leave a comment! Panasonic Bathroom Fans dealers
